In brief: RLS/PVD

Possibly could be restless leg syndrome; a disorder with symptoms of limb pain that resolves with motion.
There are medications that can be prescribed by your physician that have been shown to be helpful. The other possibility is poor blood flow in your legs. If oxygen is deprived, the you can experience pain that is relieved once the patient gets out of bed. Either way, you should see a doctor.
